@derkom it is from that musical classic yes but I'm sure its from TOS as well.
Nope.

Edit: There's an episode wherein he referred to "no life as we know it", but that's as close as it gets.

I've spent way too many hours watching that show. I'm not sure it's something to be proud of. :lol:

That quote is from The Firm's song "Star Trekkin'", not from any actual Trek. :ugeek:
I think that was the first record I ever owned 8-)

It's a pity all the other songs were sanctimonious "wholesome" stuff!

I remember my mate driving with all the windows down and the sun roof open, blasting Star Trekkin from his sanyo dodgy stereo in his rotten datsun 120y.

At least he thought he was cool. (Mullet, dark glasses, moustache, he had it all going on) :lol:

Fortunately not, I was still going through my long haired biker phase back then.

Now I need the IDC connector for the internal floppy drive which I ordered in late February and have literally been sitting motionless in a postal warehouse in Sydney for SEVEN WEEKS.
